It looks like the Smartphone will soon take over the Netbook world. In recent months, we have already seen a lot of buzz for Apple iPad and just after that we saw OlivePad to be the first tablet PC running on Android OS. Now Samsung is also joining the tablet PC race with their latest launch Galaxy Tab that is already getting lot of hype in the mobile arena and its ready to give a touch competition to Apple iPad.
Galaxy Tab is the first Tablet device from Samsung Electronics, so its launch has added a new category of products for Samsung. Galaxy Tab is powered by latest Android 2.2 OS and offers a lot of features to be use on the move. Its 7-inch TFT-LCD screen is good for watching movies or reading e-books on the move.
It comes with “Readers Hub” application that provides easy access to a vast digital library. At the same time, Samsung unveils ‘Media Hub’, a gateway to a world of films and videos, and ‘Music Hub’, an application giving access to a wide range of music tunes.
With 3G HSPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0, the Samsung GALAXY Tab enhances users’ mobile communication on a whole new level. Video conferencing and push email on the large 7-inch display make communication more smooth and efficient.
While the front-facing camera allows face-to-face video telephony over 3G, the rear-facing camera captures still images and video that you can edit, upload and share, all without any hassle.
